An introduction to metaphysics by Martin Heidegger( Book )

18 editions published between 1959 and 2005 in English and German and held by 1,727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Introduction to Metaphysics includes a reinterpretation of Greek thought, a vision of Western history, and a glimpse of the reasons behind Heidegger's support of the Nazi Party in the 1930s. Heidegger tries to reawaken the "question of Being" by challenging some of the most enduring prejudices embedded in Western philosophy and in our everyday practices and langauge. Furthermore, be relates this question to the insights of Greek tragedy into the human condition and to the political and cultural crises of modernity." "This new translation makes this work more accessible than ever before. It combines smoothness with accuracy and provides conventional translations of Greek passages that Heidegger translated unconventionally. There are also extensive notes, a German-English glossary, and an introduction that discusses the history of the text, its basic themes, and its place in Heidegger's oeuvre."--Jacket
